The Women’s Rights Movement in the 1920’s

Inspiriting Womens rights movement.

Women did not always find life as easy as it is today. The Women’s Rights Movement, changed society, into what we know it to be today. Women around the world were considered to be inferior to men, but over many years of hard work and devotion, women finally gained equality. Women were a man’s property, were not considered a “person”, could not hold jobs, and were not allowed to vote.

In earlier years, women were inferior to men in many ways. Women and their children seemed to be owned by the father and husband. The laws brought over from Great Britain, seemed to be the reason for these laws. Women did not have any property rights and once she was married, she was no longer allowed to own land, could not keep the money she earned for herself and was not allowed the care and control of her children. A man was able to sell the family farm, take all the money for himself, and leave his wife and children behind with nothing. Also, if a man died without writing a will, his wife was not able to inherit anything, including any of the money she may have earned herself, or the land she had owned before her marriage. The Women’s Rights Movement, helped women throughout the country by passing laws stating that women could in fact own part of her husbands estate. In Alberta, the Dower Act was passed in the early 1900’s, giving women the legal right to one third of her husbands estate during his life, and after his death. In 1922, married women in Alberta were finally given the right to own property in her own name. Emily Murphy was the woman behind these new laws in Alberta. The 1920’s were a giant stepping stone for women. This right to own property, made women everywhere know that they were able to do things without a husband to depend on. It gave them strength, which women still find today.

In the begining of the 1900’s, a woman was not considered a person. The British North America Act of 1867 used the word persons when it reffered to more than one person , and the word he , when it reffered to only one person. Many people believed that the use of the word he , meant that when they reffered to more than one person, they were also reffering only to men. The act also said that only “qualified persons” could be appointed to the Senate. Women’s groups began pressuring the federal government to appoint a woman to the Senate, and many wanted Emily Murphy to be this woman. They declined this issue, saying that she could not be part of the Senate, when women were not considered persons in federal law. In 1927, Emily Murphy, Nellie McClung, Irene Parlby, Louis McKinney and Henrietta Edwars, nicknamed “The Valiant Five” asked the Supreme Court of Canada to answer the following question : Are women persons? After five long weeks of debaits and arguments, the Supreme Court of Canada decided that the definition of the word person , did not include women. The Valiant Five brought the Persons case to the Privy Council in England, which was Canada’s highest court. On October 18th 1929, the Privy Court, finally announced that women were indeed persons. This decision was a big one for Canadian women.

    this was all very helpful. i have a 4 page research paper due tomorrow about women’s rights and stuff in the 1920’s and before reading this the only thing i could think to write was:

    “After centuries of living in a fascist patriarchy intent on keeping them slaves to men, women were finally able to break free during this liberating decade.”

    and i honestly do not believe my teacher would like that very much

    hi everyone yay women in Japan are pwned by husbands it suxx.But this is just true in Canada ur forgetting about other parts of the Atlas.Women serve their men theoretically and always will, even though these rights have been passed down.Unfortunately its quite sad, we cook, clean, take orders, to do whatever.Well regardless EMILY MURPHY you’re my HERO!!!

    Thanks for the info about the property rights of women in the 1920’s – I’m doing a project on women’s rights from the 20’s to the 30’s, and this helped a lot. Definitely citing you! ^^

    Oh, and by the way… posting “womenz r da shiz” or something like that makes you almost just as sexist as the men you are criticizing. Women aren’t better than men, but we are equal. We’re all human beings – stop trying to make one half any better than the other (I’m a girl, by the way, just so you know).

    The Women’s Rights Movement in the 1920’s

    Women had hard times finding good paying jobs that they were able to hold in the early 1900’s. In society, women were supposed to stay at home with the children, do all the household chores including dairy and tending to the gardens, as well as preparing all the food.. A woman was not supposed to be part of the working world, but for some women, they did not have a choice. Women who did find jobs, got payed very low salaries compared to men, and got very few hours. They were able to find jobs as school teachers, or in factories if they were lucky. Many young women had to turn to prostitution, because they had no other means of survival. The Women’s Rights Movement allowed women to obtain more work hours, and minimum wage. This helped women tremendously, since some women had to support children, and in some cases sick husbands. If there was no husand, or if he was ill and not able to work, the women of the household had very hard times working and trying to support their families. Not only were employers not looking to hire women, but women did not have high forms of education. They were primarily educated on the maintenance of a household, and the running of a family. In most cases, women were only educated until the ages of 9 to 12 years old. The only girls who were permitted to pursue a higher education, were those

    Dear Writer,

    A good article, I’d give it… 6/10, but you must learn to spell ‘referred’ properly – single ‘r.’ Also, ‘aqcuired’ contains a ‘c,’ ‘husband’ comprises a ‘b,’ you completely misspelt ‘debates,’ and there is bountiful incorrect punctuation of which I have not the time to guide you with. It disgusts me to know that, as a 12 year-old, there are many adults who I correct the spellings of frequently. When I am Prime Minister, I shall see to it that every one must know how to spell properly, or else never find a job and spend their lives with London’s wafes and strays, living in litter bins.

    Yours sincerely,

    David Miliband

    Learn how to type, you guys are extremely stupid. This is a bash on society, I’d live back then anyday because no one was lazy and they knew what it was like to work for what they got. This disgusts me. Way to go America- all ghetto- right down the crapper. And all the men, how would you like it if we told you that you had no say in anything and you weren’t even a person? Do not think you would appreciate that too much.

    just by reading all of this, it shows how much people in this economy actually pay attention in school, how grown up they are and how stupid people can act. most of the people on here are what causes united states problems. you people need to grow up and stop acting so childish. i am 17 and i act more mature then people that type on this website about “womens rights” you all know without womens rights this world wouldn’t be as great as it is now. you a;; just take it for granite.

    I found this article to be very helpful, however I am not pleased with the amount of spelling errors. I am fourteen years old and I can spell better than that! “Tho” or “Follo” and even “Erra”? How is this possible? I don’t even use abbreviations when I text. This article is supposed to empower women, and if a women wrote this, then it’s doing to exact opposite. You give women a bad name. I would not consider this a reliable source. Shame on you.

    Look at all of you! God has blessed us with a great nation! Yes we have been through a lot of troubles, but we hae overcome them! Whoever wants me to prove God is real, here is oneway I know he is. When the Revolutionary War broke out and America just had some farmers and Britian had a real trained Army, did they ever think that “weak” America was gonna beat their tails? NO! but we did. Before the Declaration of Independance was written, they had a 3 HOUR bible study! God we trust is on our money etc. God has blessed this nation even when we’ve done wrong and most of you guys on here has perverted this nation. Shame on you! But may God bless those you have confessed Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior

    Women have always been equal to men, in every way. Just because society has believed that women were inferior to men, and have lived their lives that way doesn\’t mean it\’s true. You see it\’s women\’s rights, not women\’s privileges. All that has been needed was for society to see that.
    P.S. Society sucks.

    nspiriting Womens rights movement.

    Women did not always find life as easy as it is today. The Women’s Rights Movement, changed society, into what we know it to be today. Women around the world were considered to be inferior to men, but over many years of hard work and devotion, women finally gained equality. Women were a man’s property, were not considered a “person”, could not hold jobs, and were not allowed to vote.

    In earlier years, women were inferior to men in many ways. Women and their children seemed to be owned by the father and husband. The laws brought over from Great Britain, seemed to be the reason for these laws. Women did not have any property rights and once she was married, she was no longer allowed to own land, could not keep the money she earned for herself and was not allowed the care and control of her children. A man was able to sell the family farm, take all the money for himself, and leave his wife and children behind with nothing. Also, if a man died without writing a will, his wife was not able to inherit anything, including any of the money she may have earned herself, or the land she had owned before her marriage. The Women’s Rights Movement, helped women throughout the country by passing laws stating that women could in fact own part of her husbands estate. In Alberta, the Dower Act was passed in the early 1900’s, giving women the legal right to one third of her husbands estate during his life, and after his death. In 1922, married women in Alberta were finally given the right to own property in her own name. Emily Murphy was the woman behind these new laws in Alberta. The 1920’s were a giant stepping stone for women. This right to own property, made women everywhere know that they were able to do things without a husband to depend on. It gave them strength, which women still find today.

    Read more in History
    « What Caused the American Civil War?Omaha: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow »In the begining of the 1900’s, a woman was not considered a person. The British North America Act of 1867 used the word persons when it reffered to more than one person , and the word he , when it reffered to only one person. Many people believed that the use of the word he , meant that when they reffered to more than one person, they were also reffering only to men. The act also said that only “qualified persons” could be appointed to the Senate. Women’s groups began pressuring the federal government to appoint a woman to the Senate, and many wanted Emily Murphy to be this woman. They declined this issue, saying that she could not be part of the Senate, when women were not considered persons in federal law. In 1927, Emily Murphy, Nellie McClung, Irene Parlby, Louis McKinney and Henrietta Edwars, nicknamed “The Valiant Five” asked the Supreme Court of Canada to answer the following question : Are women persons? After five long weeks of debaits and arguments, the Supreme Court of Canada decided that the definition of the word person , did not include women. The Valiant Five brought the Persons case to the Privy Council in England, which was Canada’s highest court. On October 18th 1929, the Privy Court, finally announced that women were indeed persons. This decision was a big one for Canadian women.

    Women had hard times finding good paying jobs that they were able to hold in the early 1900’s. In society, women were supposed to stay at home with the children, do all the household chores including dairy and tending to the gardens, as well as preparing all the food.. A woman was not supposed to be part of the working world, but for some women, they did not have a choice. Women who did find jobs, got payed very low salaries compared to men, and got very few hours. They were able to find jobs as school teachers, or in factories if they were lucky. Many young women had to turn to prostitution, because they had no other means of survival. The Women’s Rights Movement allowed women to obtain more work hours, and minimum wage. This helped women tremendously, since some women had to support children, and in some cases sick husbands. If there was no husand, or if he was ill and not able to work, the women of the household had very hard times working and trying to support their families. Not only were employers not looking to hire women, but women did not have high forms of education. They were primarily educated on the maintenance of a household, and the running of a family. In most cases, women were only educated until the ages of 9 to 12 years old. The only girls who were permitted to pursue a higher education, were those of families with money. The young women then started working and doing chores for the family, until they were old enough to get married. This lack of education, also prevented them from holding jobs, and least of all jobs who aquired good pay.

    Ladies of the 1920’s were determined to get what they wanted. There countless organizations formed by women around the world including the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA). These associations organized protests, riots, held seminars where women would speak out to politicians and to other women. They created a lot of problems for the authorities, but they never once gave up. There was a group of rebels named the Flappers. These women were not what society called a proper woman. They wore dresses that made them look young and boyish, and cut their hair into bobs and later on to even shorter hair cuts. The 1920’s are reffered to as the Roaring Twenties, mainly because of these women. They were very independent women, and did not do what men told them to. They believed in living life to the full, and partying, dancing, and their sence of fashion were their way of doing so.

    nspiriting Womens rights movement.

    Women did not always find life as easy as it is today. The Women’s Rights Movement, changed society, into what we know it to be today. Women around the world were considered to be inferior to men, but over many years of hard work and devotion, women finally gained equality. Women were a man’s property, were not considered a “person”, could not hold jobs, and were not allowed to vote.

    In earlier years, women were inferior to men in many ways. Women and their children seemed to be owned by the father and husband. The laws brought over from Great Britain, seemed to be the reason for these laws. Women did not have any property rights and once she was married, she was no longer allowed to own land, could not keep the money she earned for herself and was not allowed the care and control of her children. A man was able to sell the family farm, take all the money for himself, and leave his wife and children behind with nothing. Also, if a man died without writing a will, his wife was not able to inherit anything, including any of the money she may have earned herself, or the land she had owned before her marriage. The Women’s Rights Movement, helped women throughout the country by passing laws stating that women could in fact own part of her husbands estate. In Alberta, the Dower Act was passed in the early 1900’s, giving women the legal right to one third of her husbands estate during his life, and after his death. In 1922, married women in Alberta were finally given the right to own property in her own name. Emily Murphy was the woman behind these new laws in Alberta. The 1920’s were a giant stepping stone for women. This right to own property, made women everywhere know that they were able to do things without a husband to depend on. It gave them strength, which women still find today.

    « What Caused the American Civil War?Omaha: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow »In the begining of the 1900’s, a woman was not considered a person. The British North America Act of 1867 used the word persons when it reffered to more than one person , and the word he , when it reffered to only one person. Many people believed that the use of the word he , meant that when they reffered to more than one person, they were also reffering only to men. The act also said that only “qualified persons” could be appointed to the Senate. Women’s groups began pressuring the federal government to appoint a woman to the Senate, and many wanted Emily Murphy to be this woman. They declined this issue, saying that she could not be part of the Senate, when women were not considered persons in federal law. In 1927, Emily Murphy, Nellie McClung, Irene Parlby, Louis McKinney and Henrietta Edwars, nicknamed “The Valiant Five” asked the Supreme Court of Canada to answer the following question : Are women persons? After five long weeks of debaits and arguments, the Supreme Court of Canada decided that the definition of the word person , did not include women. The Valiant Five brought the Persons case to the Privy Council in England, which was Canada’s highest court. On October 18th 1929, the Privy Court, finally announced that women were indeed persons. This decision was a big one for Canadian women.

    Women had hard times finding good paying jobs that they were able to hold in the early 1900’s. In society, women were supposed to stay at home with the children, do all the household chores including dairy and tending to the gardens, as well as preparing all the food.. A woman was not supposed to be part of the working world, but for some women, they did not have a choice. Women who did find jobs, got payed very low salaries compared to men, and got very few hours. They were able to find jobs as school teachers, or in factories if they were lucky. Many young women had to turn to prostitution, because they had no other means of survival. The Women’s Rights Movement allowed women to obtain more work hours, and minimum wage. This helped women tremendously, since some women had to support children, and in some cases sick husbands. If there was no husand, or if he was ill and not able to work, the women of the household had very hard times working and trying to support their families. Not only were employers not looking to hire women, but women did not have high forms of education. They were primarily educated on the maintenance of a household, and the running of a family. In most cases, women were only educated until the ages of 9 to 12 years old. The only girls who were permitted to pursue a higher education, were those of families with money. The young women then started working and doing chores for the family, until they were old enough to get married. This lack of education, also prevented them from holding jobs, and least of all jobs who aquired good pay.

    Ladies of the 1920’s were determined to get what they wanted. There countless organizations formed by women around the world including the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA). These associations organized protests, riots, held seminars where women would speak out to politicians and to other women. They created a lot of problems for the authorities, but they never once gave up. There was a group of rebels named the Flappers. These women were not what society called a proper woman. They wore dresses that made them look young and boyish, and cut their hair into bobs and later on to even shorter hair cuts. The 1920’s are reffered to as the Roaring Twenties, mainly because of these women. They were very independent women, and did not do what men told them to. They believed in living life to the full, and partying, dancing, and their sence of fashion were their way of doing so. The Flappers rode bicycles and drove cars, drank in public, smoked cigarettes through long holders, and were sexually liberated. They threw “petting parties” which were the equivalent of modern sex parties. This group of independant women started a trend, that even more respectable women followed in following years, but in a less “out there” manner.

    I cannot believe how iggnorant people on here have been. Women in certain parts of the world are still fighting for rights to go to school, to be considered an equal. You have no right to state how you believe women are anything but equals and honestly go make your own freaking sandwhich!

    Women are good for four things: cooking, cleaning, sex, and sex with their sister.
